Still humid, but fall-like weather on the way

Posted: Updated:

Good Tuesday.  Let's get through a few more hot, humid days, then we can enjoy some cooler and drier air this weekend.

For the rest of the week, a strong ridge of high pressure will do 2 things for us.  First, it will give us a southeast flow of air that will keep bringing in warm moist air from the Atlantic.  Second, the high will cap the atmosphere which means all the moisture will stay trapped at the surface keeping the rain and most of the clouds away, but also making it very muggy outside.

This pattern will get disrupted Thursday as a front begins to work it's way in.  That front could bring a few isolated showers Thursday into Friday, but the main impact will be much cooler and drier air settling in late Friday and through the weekend.

For Saturday and Sunday, highs will be in the low 80s.  Dew point values will drop from about 70 into the mid 50s, indicating MUCH drier air in place.  Lows will be around 60 Saturday morning, and in the mid 50s Sunday morning.

    Although we will have a little more warm and humid air moving in today, it will still be a pretty nice start to the week. Look for mostly cloudy skies with a slight chance for an isolated storm or two this afternoon and evening. The high will reach 83 degrees.More

     Good Sunday. What a great morning! Temps are a little lower. The air is a little drier. It feels great outside, and it should stay nice through the day. Look for an afternoon high in Chattanooga of 81. More
